Bob Wolverton is the main antagonist in the 1996 exploitation film Freeway.

He was portrayed by Kiefer Sutherland who also portrayed David, Senator Quintas Corvus, Bosco, and The Caller.


Bob is an elusive, intangible, and noncommittal serial killer who is widely known as the I-5 Killer. He worked as a high school counselor and enjoyed finding young girls (especially ones with problematic tendencies, whom he views as "scum" and "garbage people") and murdering them. Although married to his wife Mimi, Bob keeps his murderous exploits a secret from her. Bob crosses paths with a 15-year-old girl named Vanessa Lutz (whose tragic background involves her being sexually abused by her drug addicted mother's boyfriend) on the freeway after her car breaks down. She tells Bob that she is planning to visit her grandmother outside of town since her mother, who works as a prostitute, has been arrested, and Bob allows her to ride with him. Along the journey, Bob eventually reveals himself as the I-5 Killer and attempts to rape Vanessa, but she grabs a hidden gun she had received earlier and shoots Bob multiple times.

Vanessa is arrested for her actions and the police do not believe her story since she has a vast criminal record. Meanwhile, Bob is revealed to have survived his injuries but is now heavily disfigured, forcing him to speak with an artificial voicebox. Later on, the police discover evidence at the crime scene that supports Vanessa's story. As they head over to Bob's house, they find a shed full of child pornography. Mimi witnesses this and commits suicide. When Bob returns home, he finds the police waiting for him and instead travels to Vanessa's grandmother's house. Vanessa manages to escape from her prison cell with various other inmates and goes to meet her grandmother, only to find that Bob has murdered her and presumably raped her corpse. Bob lies waiting for her in her grandmother's bed (in a scene reminiscing Little Red Riding Hood) and they begin to fight. Eventually, Vanessa gains the upper hand and strangles Bob to death with the cord to his artificial voice box.
